House Flipper is a high-fantasy game where millennials and zoomers can live out the impossibility of being able to not only buy a house but then have the time to do it up and sell it on. Despite being incredibly absurd, it’s a fairly popular game thanks to the entertaining gameplay loop and almost cathartic ambience throughout each level.
Well, the good news is that House Flipper is now coming to VR, in a game called, wait for it, House Flipper VR. It’s best to keep naming conventions simply to be fair, just look at how much the name Wii U messed things up for Nintendo. Anyway, House Flipper VR brings the whole experience to virtual reality, and it’ll allow players to become more immersed in the dream of owning property than ever before. It’ll also let you take a more hands-on approach to the cleaning, and hell, maybe even teach you something about yourself and your way of life along the way.
Alright, you’re unlikely to have any personal revelations about your philosophies or ethics, but it does look like it could be quite good fun. VR is a great way to update this kind of game, with physics-based gameplay being substantially more enjoyable and entertaining when you literally lay your hands on everything. House Flipper VR is coming to the Oculus store on August 27th, and it’s coming to Steam on September 24th. That means you could only be a few minutes or weeks away from being able to own a fake house.
